Monday Morning Music Mania
On Mondays, during Monday Morning Music Mania, our students get the opportunity to compose on the piano or bring in their own instruments to play. This is a fun, educational time, when students practice being a good, appreciative audience as well as being performers.
|Students take turns to complete pieces of|
a hundred board.
|Pieces include vertical and horizontal|
|We practice addition facts the fun way.|
|It's fun writing on the board.|
|Completing the hundred board is|
another math choice.
|We solve problems in our math folders.|
We can use manipulatives to help us.
|We complete CGI problems.|
We can time ourselves.
|Chess is a choice when math|
assignments are completed.
